I saw my PM Doc on Monday...from what I told him, I am not tolerating the Nortriptyline at the max 80mg. Too many side effects. So he is taking me down to 50mg, then 25mg and then nothing.
I told him how I was feeling on the Oxy 10mg during the day and he wants me to try a newer drug called Nucynta 50mg. He wants me to take this during the day (1 every 4 hours as needed) instead of the Oxy. I will still take 20mg Oxy at bedtime. I am just amazed at how much trial and error goes into finding the right "mix". Sometimes I wonder if I will ever find mine..
Has anyone taken Nucynta before? Like or disliked?
